Advanced search operators give you more tools to search for videos in your uploads. Using these operators, you can make specific searches in Video Manager to pull up just the right video you want to see.
To use an advanced search operator, just type it into the search box at your uploads page and hit enter. Some operators will require you to enter in a term to search, like a word in a video title or description. Don't forget that!
For a list of all search operators, what they do, and examples, see the list below.
|Search operator||What it does|
|is:public, is:private, is:unlisted||Searches for videos that are public, private, or unlisted.|
|tag:||Searches for videos with a tag that you give it. Example: Search for "tag:games" and everything with that tag appear|
|##||Another version of the tag search. Type the name of your tag in quotes after ## to search for that tag. Example: ##"Game Reviews"|
|length>, length>=, length=, length<=, length<||Searches for videos according to length in seconds. Example: "length>60" searches for any video longer than sixty seconds. These can be used in combination - "length>60 length<100" finds any video longer than 60 seconds but shorter than 100.|
|before:, after:||Searches for videos based on when you uploaded them. Example: "after:2012-03-01" will return anything upload after March 1, 2012.|
|title:||Searches for videos according to contents of the title. Example: "title:food" will return any video that has the word "food" in the title.|
|description:||Searches within the description of your videos. Example: "description:food" will show you videos that have the word "food" in their description.|
|-||Use a hyphen to exclude something from your search. This can be used in combination with other search terms. Example: "title:BIG -is:private" will show you videos that have the word "big" in the title and aren't private.|
|OR||Use OR (in all caps) to search for videos matching one term or another. Example: "title:BIG or title:food" will return videos that have either "big" or "food" in the title.|
|()||Use parantheses to group words together when using a search operator. Example: "title:(BIG food)" will return videos with "big" and "food" in their title.|
